WorkSafeBC guidelines support safe reopening of businesses
Province of BC Posted Friday, May 15, 2020 1:45 PM

Message from Mayor…
I am taking this opportunity to address the citizens and residents of our community to assure you that our Council and town staff are continuing to work with our provincial and federal governments and health officers to keep our community safe, and provide you with essential services.
Thank you all for taking the critical steps to keep your families, friends and yourselves safe and healthy. By now, you have heard many of us tell you to wash your hands often, stay at least 2 meters away from others, and stay home unless absolutely necessary avoiding non-essential travel and trips outside of your primary residence. Those travellers returning from outside Canada need to quarantine themselves for 2 weeks.
We certainly hope this worldwide pandemic will ease its drastic hold on us all soon. In the meantime, look after yourselves and your loved ones, and know that we are continuing to use best practices in our town to help all of us work through this stressful time.

The Town of Osoyoos is monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely to ensure we continue to respond to emerging issues as they relate to Town facilities, programs, services and events. This includes following the direction of Interior HealthBritish Columbia Centre for Disease Control or the Government of Canada.
While the COVID-19 situation is changing daily around the world, we are mindful that our community is concerned about the potential impact of the further spread of the coronavirus and we are acting accordingly to do what we can to support public safety.
